After the success of our Fringe Festival Taster Days we are holding a Special Taster Day on Sunday September 28th. Sessions start at 11am  and run throughout the day, with up to 6 people in a group.  For just £10 you can have a demonstration from either Hazel or Katya, our resident ceramicists, then take your turn on the wheel.

We will glaze and fire your piece for you. The pots will be ready for collection about 2 weeks later.  Alternatively you may decide to return to paint it.  You can come any day and pay the usual £5 studio fee.

Booking is essential. Pay over the phone with a card or drop in. Children are welcome to join in – suitable for 8 years+.

Start times: 11am; 12am; 1pm; 2.30pm; 3.30pm – Come and try something new!


Look out for our clay hand-building sessions on:

October 19th – make you own Beach Hut Money Box or Ginger Bread House;

November 16th – make you own Clay Christmas Decorations.

Details will be on the website soon – or get in touch for more information.

sb Crazy Beasts throw pots on their first date.....

We get up to all sorts here!  This was slightly out of our comfort zone – but hey we are game.

However the good news is that you don’t have to go to those lengths to have a go on the wheel!  You can learn to throw your own pot on most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons and some Sundays.  Be yourself -  bring your best mate and have some fun.  The £25 fee covers all materials and a second session to come and paint your creations.
